    Price drop-
    Didn't realize they'd come down so much- I think I paid right around $300 with shipping, new, for the EP1500. I've lowered the price...

    The IVP is kinda rare, and has a vintage sound as described below, but can get "in your face" depending on EQ settings...I have seen only one in the past year on eBay.

    My camera is down right now, but I am moving into my new house, and am reducing some "inventory"...

    First up on the list is my Behringer EP1500 power amp. Almost new. Never abused, lived in a rack most of it's life. I'd like to get $200 for it, it's heavy so it might cost a few bux to ship. I never gouge on shipping, so the real cost would be passed on to the buyer, with a receipt for it.

    Next up is my old IVP preamp, they don't make them any more. Semi-parametric EQ, great tone- if I didn't love my BBE so much, I'd still be playing it. Has that cool "Space:1999" type lettering in yellow on black. I'd like to get $125 for it.

    I'm also considering selling off a few basses- ones that don't get played too much any more. I'll let you all know which ones I might be willing to part with. Some are low-end, like my Squier Precision 5 (J setup on a P body, shoreline gold and white p/g) but it has the sound, and it plays great! Would be a good way for someone to get into a 5 for not very much moolah...I'll take $140 for it...

    I'll post pics soon. I have to get my camera fixed- shutter sticks. Either that, or I'll have to get a new one...

    If someone buys the pre and the power together, I have an SKB rack I'll throw in for free. $300 for both.

    I have my 3 year-old today, so I'll check back later on this afternoon to see if there's any interest...

    EP1500 does 280/side @ 8ohms, 450/side @ 4ohms, 700/side @ 2 ohms.

    800 watts bridged mono into 8 Ohms
    1400 watts bridged mono into 4 Ohms (how I run mine)

    Then don't buy it. He has the right to ask what he wants for it.

    I owned an IVP once and they are sweet, vintage-sounding preamps. Phil Lesh used one in the 70s and they are well-built pres.

    Thanks for the bumpage! And this amp was only used for 6 gigs. I'll try to get some pics up today.

    It's in a gig bag. No hardshell was available when I bought it. It's in good shape, though.
